Get ready to dream big: According to Points, Miles & Martinis, select American Express cardholders are currently eligible to receive $600 off stays of five or more nights booked at Luxury Retreats rental properties worldwide. Luxury Retreats, which was acquired by Airbnb in 2017, is a collection of 4,000 luxury villas in more than 100 destinations.

Given the high-end nature of this offer, it’s no surprise that only American Express’ premium credit cards are included in this promotion: The Platinum Card® from American Express, The Business Platinum Card® from American Express and the Centurion Card.

If $600 off a five-night stay seems substantial, it’s because — as you might have guessed by the name alone — the cost to rent one of these properties can be pretty, well, pretty substantial. But, before you close your browser, hear us out: Although pricey, you can find properties that can accommodate six or more guests per night. So, if you’re looking for a group getaway, need a place to go for your next family vacation or are simply one of the lucky ones with a big tax refund coming your way, this could be a deal worth taking advantage of.

To get you in the mood for a lavish trip that won’t totally drain your bank account, TPG browsed Luxury Retreats’ portfolio and selected five of our favorite properties least likely to break the bank. And while the rentals listed below are more affordable than most, they definitely do not skimp on the luxurious amenities.

Though this promotion ends on May 31, stays can be booked for as late in the summer as Aug. 31. All stays must be five or more consecutive nights at the same property. Additionally, the offer is only available on new reservations and must be made over the phone (bookings made online are not eligible for this promotion). Finally, unlike with other American Express promotions, the $600 savings will be credited to the final invoice: not the cardholder’s statement.

Keep in mind that, in addition to receiving $600 off a five-night or longer stay, travelers will also earn a hefty amount of American Express Membership Rewards points — one of the more valuable loyalty currencies out there. According to TPG’s most recent valuations, they’re worth about 2 cents apiece. And with 21 transfer partners, the points you earn can help you travel to just about anywhere in the world.
